Gameboy DMG Screws Query

Post by SmiddyJR » Tue May 19, 2020 11:17 pm

Just wondered what 6 screws you need for closing a GB DMG case. I am using a kite sword and screen is mounted in a hoolyhoo mount with brass inserts.

I bought m2 6mm screws after reading it somewhere on the forums, but they seem to slide into the inserts rather than latch. They seem fine enough in the battery compartment screws, it does hold together just but i can feel it pulling open.

I have to open it to figure our why the B key is being pushed forward so thought i might as well get the right screws ready.
I have looked at several websites but the screw sets all seem to be out of stock.

The only difference between m2 6mm and m2 8mm is that the one is 2mm longer than the other. If it's not wide enough to grip properly, you probably need m2.5 or m3.
